The List Of Homeworlds In Warhammer 40K Darktide

The Role-playing aspect of the game is certainly no pushover, as you can customize between eight different homeworlds for the character, which are located throughout the Moebian Domain. It is imperative that you get to know each one properly along with their description within the game, giving you a rough idea of their background information,

As shown in the image above, the in-game description of the homeworld states that it is considered one of the ‘second worlds’ of the entire Moebian Domain. The planet of Crucis is a large shrine world with the popular trait of being an excellent location for travelers seeking a pilgrimage.

Furthermore, it is also one of the two main planets alongside Atoma that had survived the Age Of Strife, which is described as one of the darkest and most grueling time periods that led to the formation of the largest political entities known as the Imperium.

Messelina Gloriana

According to the description of the homeworld, as shown in the image above, it states that it is a heavily-forested moon that also serves as a minor shrine world. But it also states that Messelina Gloriana suffers from having a low population, and it also doesn’t help with the fact that it has fewer resources, at least compared to other worlds. But that is also essential due to the fall of nearby Komaris.

As shown in the image above, the world of Rocyria produces intensively-farmed and mass-harvested grain crops, which is the main highlight of the world according to the in-game description. It is worth noting that its inhabitants, the ‘Rocyrians’ end up becoming the target of many ridiculous comments by other beings of the Moebian Domain.

However, that ends up becoming far-fetched as the truth is that the entire population of Rocyria is hard-working and sincere in their lifestyle.

Branx Magna

You can more than likely guess the specialty of this world from its visuals shown in the image above, as the entire core of the planet to its outsides is comprised of water. The population of the world thrives via the Hive islands, and most importantly, Incron is also known as the main naval depot for the Moebian Domain system.

The world called Mornax is a small and grim mining planet that is well-known for its hellish living conditions and the environment. However, it ends up becoming a problem as this harsh living space produces a famously hardy and dour populace.

The world of Pavane is relatively new with its colonization, but the most important aspect here is that it is thriving with rich natural resources. It is one of the few reasons why the population of this world is growing steadily.

Which Is The Best Homeworld Choice?

Lastly, the most important question that you might be having right now is, out of all these eight distinctive worlds, which one is the best one to pick for your character? Well, truth be told, it all comes down to personal preference, as there is no right or wrong choice here. As we stated in the beginning, the home worlds affect nothing gameplay-wise nor provide anything beneficial for you.

However, the only element they alter is the fact that some dialogue may be different depending on the choice. According to what we heard from a few of our other staff members playing the game, the difference in the dialogue is almost unnoticeable but again, choose whichever home world intrigues or fancies you the most in Warhammer 40K Darktide.

The Wrap-Up

The Warhammer universe is easily one of the most popular fictional media of the generation, and with another title in their ever-growing video game series, Darktide, it is apparent that its adoration by fans isn’t stopping anytime soon. The game is similar to their other franchise titles, such as Warhammer Vermintide, as it allows you to take on various battle missions in either co-op or single-player mode.

However, in our experience, the game is best played with your friends or other players using its exclusive matchmaking mode. There are four different classes in the game, each having its own set of powerful abilities and builds which will help you unleash mayhem on the hordes of enemies.
